    After many years of trying, I finally killed a mule deer with my longbow this morning. This is my first archery big game animal, and my first kill with a primitive bow.

    WARNING WARNING WARNING

    The following post contains pictures of a dead animal. If you are offended, traumatized, or otherwise all het up over such things, please save yourself the trouble. I'm not trying to start a fight or anything, just sharing a long-coming personal triumph!

    This is my first archery big game kill, and my first kill of any kind with a primitive bow. 27 yard shot with a black locust longbow and a home-made spruce/turkey feather arrow. Took him right through the heart and he went down fast. Tenderloins for supper at Badger Manor tonight!

    Never done big game with a bow.
    But have done wallaby rabit ducks and goats with bow.

    And it's a thrill that's for sure.
    Thought about it for wild pigs.
    But always go for the knife and fight it man to animal first one down, me or it.

    No problem, here, since you intend to eat the meat. My only problem with hunting is trophy hunters who take antlers and leave the rest of the corpse to rot. If they aren't going to feed themselves or their families or friends with their kill, they shouldn't kill just for a souvenir. But you're okay. I know you aren't wasteful.

    Yeah, I'm with you there. That kind of hunting is actually very unusual, and illegal in most places. Even safari hunters in Africa, who are after hides and horns (it being too expensive to ship meat home without it spoiling), donate the meat to local villagers. I guess some bear and predator hunters leave the meat, though all of my friends who hunt bears eat the meat too, and I can say it's delicious! The only antlered game hunters I know of who hunt the way you describe are poachers, and yeah, they tick me off too.

    My wife happened to be nearby (weird story about that, which I might get around to telling later) so she snapped the photo for me.

    Who took the photo with you in it holding the arrow? Was the camera set up on a tripod for a timer shot?

    I have done some pretty go trophy hunting.
    Never heard of leaving a dead animal behind after collecting your trophies.

    We have always cut the head off taken that for mounting.

    Cut the animal up and hike back down the hill to have the whole thing turned into food.

    Only time I see dead animals is from our government doc workers who kill the pests. They leave the bodies along with 1080 poison everywhere.

    Hi, Mac.

    Taking the head for mounting is fine, as long as the meat is eaten, i.e., all the usable parts of the animal are used. I was referring to those hunters who kill exclusively for trophies and leave the rest of the animal behind. A complete waste, and immoral. I'm glad it's illegal in most places. I once saw a documentary in which someone did exactly that. They shot an elk, then took the head and walked away. Never went back. My dad was watching it with me, and he was disgusted, too.

    You're fine, Mac. Nothing wrong with using the entire animal.
